PEERNET.DRV ePro is a print driver that converts documents into raster images. The most advanced print driver available on the market, this product converts Microsoft Windows documents into 36 industry-standard serialized or multi-page image types. With more than 24 image-compression methods available and many sophisticated features, this product is particularly useful to computer-aided document design (CADD) and graphic design professionals.

PEERNET.DRV ePro offers unique image processing that automates most simple image enhancement activities: automatic cropping, automatic trimming, automatic copying, and antialiasing of images. You can also choose from more than 24 compression methods and from numerous compression quality settings. Append mode enables you to build a multi-page file gradually by appending pages to an existing file whenever the need arises. And you can rotate landscape pages to portrait orientation automatically, even within the same document.

With print-to-email capability, printing automatically launches email (including Outlook Express, Netscape, Eudora, or Lotus Notes), then attaches and sends all output files. The numerous output options include local folder, network folder, ftp folder, and Web folder (WebDAV). And we guarantee that recipients receive virus-free image files. Even if the original documents or computer have a virus, the images created will not.

Its powerful image manipulation and processing features make PEERNET.DRV ePro the ideal print driver to meet your CADD and graphic design needs.

PEERNET.DRV ePro offers the following features:

Image Processing
PEERNET.DRV ePro offers unique image processing that automates most simple image enhancement activities. Its features include:

  • Automatic cropping: Removes repetitive, unwanted debris from batch-processed documents.
  • Automatic trimming: Removes blank space on all sides of the document.
  • Automatic copying: Places the image on a different-sized blank background according to X/Y coordinates and horizontal/vertical alignment settings that you define.
  • Antialiasing of the image.

Print to Email
This product supports virtually all email clients, making it ideal for enterprises of any size.

When configuring the product, you can default the TO, CC, and BCC fields, specify files that will be attached to all messages, set the default subject, and set the default message content.

Use numerous email programs to automatically attach and send all output files. The product includes support for the following mail protocols: Simple MAPI, Extended MAPI, and VIM. The table below lists some of the common email clients that have been tested with the PEERNET.DRV drivers. (This list is not an exhaustive list of all mail clients supported.)

Email Client

Simple MAPI

Extended MAPI


Microsoft Outlook Express




Netscape Messenger








Microsoft Outlook




Lotus Notes




Built-in support lets you communicate directly with any SMTP-enabled mail server. This feature provides the ability to send mail even if you do not have a mail client program on your computer. Just enable the SMTP email option of the image driver.

Virus-free Email Distribution
Launch any email client to automatically attach and send virus-free output files. Even if the original documents or computer have a virus, the images you create will not.

Full Control over Output Filenames
You can configure four naming profiles to determine how all output files are named. You have access to a number of variables that hold runtime information for building dynamic filenames. You can keep the default extension for image files or use your own extension.

Run External Programs or Files
The enhanced run command operations support using the extension of the file to invoke the default application associated with that file extension. When enabled, the default command associated with the run-at-end-of-file event will invoke the default image viewer.

Shared Printer
Pre-load standard printer setups using the printer setting, to allow drivers to be distributed as a shared printer across the enterprise without using a special installation script. Users quickly and easily install the driver on local machines from the server using the standard Add Printer wizard.

Programmers API
Develop full integration of the driver with your application by using the programmers API that is distributed as a Windows DLL and provided with each driver.

Special Commands
Control printing dynamically at runtime by embedding special commands called control strings in your documents. (Think of these control strings as the macro language for the print driver.) Place PEERNET.DRV control strings at strategic points throughout your documents to control any aspect of the printing process.

Workflow Automation
Enter a run command and PEERNET.DRV ePro launches an external application, such as a file viewer or photo editor, immediately after output. Commands can be set to run at the start of a print job, at the end of a print job, at file close, or after each page -- or all four.

Choose the most suitable compression method and compression quality settings for each image type. PEERNET.DRV ePro supports more than 24 image-compression methods.

Append Mode
Build a multi-page file gradually by appending pages to an existing file whenever the need arises.

Automatic Page Rotation
Rotate landscape pages to portrait orientations automatically, even within the same document.

Environment Settings
Enjoy easy access to the entire contents of the Windows registry. Use registry data in the special commands and as parameters to your applications.

Global Numbering
Eliminates the need to choose a unique filename for each file created by the driver.

Use variables to retrieve runtime state information about a print job, to store personal data, and to set printing preferences dynamically.

Easy Installation
Just run the setup file and your installation is complete because PEERNET.DRV ePro comes as a self-installing executable file.

Output Filenames
Set PEERNET.DRV ePro to prompt for output filenames using a standard Save As dialog box, or pre-set the output filenames in the driver settings.

Universal Language Support
Enjoy hassle-free multilingualism. The PEERNET.DRV drivers are the only raster print drivers that offer this benefit. The majority of the print properties and the context-sensitive online help automatically adapt to the host systems language. No translation required.
